Hisako Kobayashi


Hisako Kobayashi been showing her art for the past 30 years on four continents. She grew up and was educated in Tokyo before moving to New York City to earn a Masters of Fine Arts from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Hisako has two grown children who reside in New York, and lives in an artist’s loft in downtown Manhattan with her husband, Barron’s Economics Editor Gene Epstein. As an abstract painter, her art combines the diverse influences of a person who still feels a strong affinity for her native Japan, but who also received rigorous artistic training in the U.S. and who has lived in that country for most of her adult life.
